The Market for Lemons, Tampere Art Fair, 2012
“The Market for Lemons: Quality Uncertainty and the Market Mechanism” is a 1970 paper by the economist George Akerlof. It discusses information asymmetry, which occurs when the seller knows more about a product than the buyer.-Wikipedia

I sold lemons at the art fair at prices ranging from 500–595 Euros (expensive for a lemon, but affordable for an artwork). I had conversations with curious visitors. Some lemons were taken for free by people who, our conversation made clear, truly shared my concept of lemons.
